This project was initiated under provisions of Title III to develop guidelines and recommendations for the development and use of videotaped field trips in guidance and career education in Ohio. The purposes of the project were to: (1) develop and field test career orientation videotapes (occutapes), (2) refine the tapes and procedures for producing such tapes, and (3) prepare guidelines and present programs to promote the use of the occutape technique within the Ohio educational community. Implementation of the project involved primarily: (1) the cooperation of a steering committee of counselors and school administrators, local business and industrial leaders, local labor unions, and school guidance counselors, and (2) feedback and evaluation of the pilot tapes by students, teachers, and course counselors after field testing, as the basis for revision of the tapes and preparation of the project report and recommended guidelines. Although not as comprehensive as originally planned, the field testing evaluation suggested that the use of locally produced videotapes in business and industry is an extremely effective technique for broadcasting student understanding of the local economic world.
